There is concern that the technology for roll fusing will not handle large paper widths, i.e., 17", without wrinkle. In this context, the problem of wrinkle appears to derive from a number of sources. One is the increase in the size of the paper from the relatively dry center to the relatively damp edges. Another is that the fuser rolls may not have perfectly parallel cylindrical surfaces so that the fuser roll nip may not move in the process direction without sideways components.
